Tuscan Daze

What hill top (and Tuscany has more than it's share of hill tops) would not be complete without a walled Roman town and ancient cathederal. Obviously, the Tuscan's agree.

The hills kept us down to 60k or so a day, twisting up to a town before plunging down the other side into another stunning valley. The road would undulate for a while before tightening into another climb and to another stunning town.

We also found ourselves on the coast and the more open farming land around Grosetto before again heading inland and yes, into the hills and a soak in the thermal hot springs at Saturnia Terme.

There is a lot to love about Tuscany, the food, wine, hills, olive groves, vineyards, people, wine, food, pastries, and of course the wine and food. But I will remeber Tuscany for it's light.
